Expungements and Record Sealing in Ohio
Legal Advocacy from a Former Franklin County Felony Prosecutor
If you have been convicted of a crime in the past, you may have trouble successfully finding a job, taking out a loan, applying to the school or university of your choice, or buying or renting a home. Right now, you might be facing disheartening denials to a number of benefits and opportunities all because of a mistake you made in the past.
If this is the case for you, don't give up! In the state of Ohio, many individuals formerly convicted of a criminal charge are able to get their record sealed. You may be eligible to clear your record and seal your case file so that you no longer have to be hindered by a past conviction.
I am Attorney James Mayer from The Mayer Law Firm and I am prepared to provide you with the legal counsel and assistance that you need to secure a fresh start and a hopeful future. Call me today to talk about your options and how I may be able to help you clear the burden of a criminal record.
Want to seal a criminal record?
The process of record sealing involves petitioning the court. You will submit an application along with a one-time application fee. It is crucial that you have knowledgeable legal counsel on your side during this process to ensure that you follow all of the necessary steps laid out in ORC § 2953.32. If you are able to seal your record, it will be as if the conviction never happened.
While law enforcement officials may still have access to your past charges even if the court deems it appropriate to seal your records, in most cases you can legally answer "no" when asked if you have ever been convicted of a crime. This is an invaluable tool in the current job market, as many of today's employers perform background checks before hiring.
